Abstract

Zr65Al7.5Ni10Cu17.5 bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) were prepared based on point-line-face-body (PLFB) theory with the pre-laid powder method from laser processing. The thickness of the prepared bulk amorphous alloy was about 1.6 mm. The microstructure evolution, phase composition, chemical component distribution, and corrosion behavior of the bulk amorphous alloy were investigated. The results showed that the amorphization ratio increased with the increase of the thickness of Zr65Al7.5Ni10Cu17.5 BMGs; furthermore, the volume fraction of the amorphous phase in the bottom layer (first layer), the middle layer (fourth layer), and the surface layer (seventh layer) was approximately 52%, 66%, and 74%, respectively. Due to different thermal cycles during the PLFB-forming process, the amorphous and crystallization coexisted in the deposited layers. For the corrosion property, the experiments of potentiodynamic polarization plots, Nyquist plots, and the equivalent circuits were performed in 3.5 wt. % sodium chloride solution. The seventh layer exhibits better corrosion-resistance performance than the other layers, which can be attributed to a higher amorphization ratio in the surface layer.
